On January 14, the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington D.C. struck down the Federal Communications Commission's Open Internet Order.
"Net neutrality means that Internet providers treat equally all the information that they transmit, rather than prioritizing the information they own or favor. The term is a loose one; in a literal sense this doesn’t really happen now, and couldn’t without freezing the Internet. But in general, you don’t want a provider to do a deal with its favorite, say, newspaper or movie service, at the expense of others. That’s why the FCC made it a condition of Comcast’s 2011 purchase of NBCUniversal." (Posted by Patricia Aufderheide on March 14, 2014).
Somerville Community Access Television convened a panel discussion at Tufts University about net neutrality and what this means for the future of Internet access.
The panel included experts in law, technology, and media. Learn more about the impact of this recent decision to strike down the Open Internet Order.
